Side by Side & We Will Speak Out at CSW61
- Event Location: USA, New York
- Event Date:Saturday 18 March, 2017
Side by Side and the We Will Speak Out coalition against sexual and gender-based violence will be co-hosting a parallel event during CSW.
The event, ‘Leaving No-one behind: Women’s economic empowerment, sexual and gender-based violence and faith’ will be at 10.30am on Saturday 18 March in the Boss Room of the UN Church Center (corner of 44th Street and 2nd Avenue opposite the UN Plaza).
An international panel of speakers and discussion will focus on the role of faith in addressing stigma and social barriers to economic empowerment and participation for the most vulnerable and marginalized women. Particular attention will be given to economic empowerment from the perspective of survivors of sexual and gender-based violence who are often excluded and ostracized.
